Re: My right control speaker doesn't work.

We need to diagnose whether it is the speakers are at fault! Take the speakers and plug it into another device with stereo output. i.e. a cd play or mp3 player! If the speakers function fine then its whatever you had the speakers plugged up to is giving trouble if not then try playing with the speaker wires a bit and see if the right speakers doesn't work at any time! get back to me with progress on this situation regards, babb

Do s-150 usb digital speakers work for mac?

Hi, I had this problem too but thankfully I figured it out after a investigating a few settings. I was very frustrated because the light came on and the buttons would manipulate my MacBook Pro and MacBook sound, but nothing came out of the speakers. Solution:1.) Click on System Preferences, 2.) Choose "Sound", 3.) Select the "Output" button in the middle of the top bar, 4.) in the selectable menu, choose USB (of course your speakers must be plugged in for this to show). Tada! You can even balance the Left and Right speakers in this menu. Hope that works for you too!

I have the Boston Acoustics BA745 Computer Speaker System. I cannot get the Sub-Wolfer to work. Everything is plugged in but when I turn the volume up on the left speaker module, nothing happens. Is there...

This could be because the speakers arn't getting a stereo signal, but first, double double TRIPLE check the wires are connected correctly. Iknow it sounds patronising but I don,t know if you are 8 or 80 years old and it's often best to go for the most obvious solution. afer making sure all connections are correct, have a look at the cable to the subwoofer - is there any damage to the cable or does the cable look like it may have been pulled - out from the sub or it's connection at the other end of the cable? Having eliminated the possibility of cable damage (it may be worth cheacking the cable to the pc) check various settings on your pc - are you getting sound from your other two speakers? if you are only getting sound from one of the left/right speakers and you're sure there's no physical failure with the speakers, then it's time to check your software. go to the little speaker ikon at the bottom right corner and right click. Select "Playback devices" select "speakers" and click "test" did you hear sound coming from the left speaker then the right? if yes then you definately have a problem with the sub. if no, click "properties" then "levels" and check the balance is set to the middle. If it is, then you should, again, suspect the speakers. Finally check the balance on your media player, if you use windows media player, go to "options" click "enhancements" then look for the balance control and make sure it's in the middle.
Finally, I would like to point-out that this particular speaker system is not known for having a loud subwoofer, put your ear against the hole in it and double check for anything happning inside (a crackling noise would indicate a danaged voice-coil.

Hope this helps.

I've tried three different sets of speakers and each time the left speaker will not work. I've also tried plugging in my headphones and my left headphone wont work. I've checked all the volume controls and...

Well the jack you plug in has three surfaces. So when you pulled it part way out then the left speaker part of the plug came in contact with the right speaker contact inside the jack and it worked. Speakers are good so if you have checked your volume control in Windows and checked that the balance control is centered it could be that your sound card is defective. You didn't tell me what kind of computer you have and if the sound card is built into the motherboard or if it is an add on card. I don't know if you only have the Window's sound control in Control Panel or if your card has a seperate software for configuring your card but I think the only thing that might disable the left speaker has to be the balance control in Window's sound control or the seperate software.

MY JBL Platinum Series speakers work on one side

the first thing to establish whether its the speakers would be to try them on a different computer. If there is some sound, that means its getting some feedback. Maybe you could go to sound manager in your control panel, or on the volume menu that you can access by clicking the volume icon on your desktop taskbar, you know, by the time and stuff. Once there, adjust the balance by moving the slider all the way to either side to see if its unbalanced. You might also wanna adjust the sound scheme from mono to stereo or dolby digital which would be in the same menu/ window. Does the right speaker thats plugged into the tower have a balance (R)ight and (L)eft? you might also want to adjust that to either side. If that is not helping, maybe there is a hardware issue with the left speaker, maybe a short, or a problem with the wire and you might have to replace that speaker if you do not know how to fix speakers. Tell me how everything works out.

Left speaker doesnt work

i've got the same speakers & have noticed that depending on the type and quality of the device that i plug them into i'll sometimes only get sound from the right speaker. i've deduced that this is due to the type of output the device offers. for example, if i plug the green tip of the cord into the headphone jack of a television with only one speaker only the right speaker will work. hope this helps

Hp speaker problem. Please help

Check the jack at the back of the computer see if it is inserted fully. if it is give it a spin between your fingers and wiggle a little to see if sound balances out. But don't forget there are several places to balance your speakers in your operating system on your computer. And what program you are using for playback. if the are self amplifing speakers unplug the jack completely out of the back of the computer. and plug in a pair of headphones and listen. If it is balanced there it is from the cable to the speakers. If it is not balanced it is the soundcard or the software. at least this will give you a place to start.
